How do I get a copy of a tax return prepared with the TurboTax CD/Download software?

Tax returns prepared in the TurboTax CD/download software are stored locally, on your computer.

Even if you e-filed your return, you'll still need to look for your return on your computer or storage device, as we don't retain copies of TurboTax CD/Download returns like we do with TurboTax Online.


Use your computer's Search or Find function to locate your tax data file.

Once located, open your tax file using the same tax-year version of TurboTax as your tax file (e.g., open your 2015 tax file with TurboTax 2015, not a different tax year version). From there, you can print a copy of your return.

If you can't find your tax return but you know you filed one, you can request a copy from the IRS.
